2010 Château Labastide Orliac 

History: Located in the South West area of France, right back of the Garonne, Chateau Labastide Orliac dates back to the 18th century when the domaine was among a select number of wine purveyors of the court of Louis XVI. The domaine has been continuously owned and managed by the Orliac family for over 7 generations. Today, sisters Catherine & Isabelle Orliac run the 23-acre estate carrying on traditional wine making practices and incorporating a judicial use of technology.

Vinification: Exclusively hand harvested, the wine is made from the youngest vines which are producing their first grapes which make a wine lighter than Royal Heri take and Le Prince. Surprisingly not aged in oak, this wine finds its soft tannins in the Tannat grape varietal.

Tasting notes: The wine showing a beautiful deep red color, presents a mix of red & black fruits on the nose and the character of the Tannat grape with the softness of its tannins in mouth. We recommend to decant this wine before serving for a memorable experience.

Varietal: 40% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc, 20% Tannat

Surface & Soil: The Brulhois region has been recognized when it obtained in 2011 its Appel latin d'Origine Protegee under the name AOP Brulhois. The Merlot grapes are planted in deep clay soil that has the same structure as the one of Pomerol.

SRP: $35 Bottle / $420 Case
